Kids Dentist

Working with the right kids dentist can be a vital factor in your child’s dental development and lifelong oral health. At Smile Studio Dentistry Fontana, we take extra care to ensure that our younger patients have a positive experience that sets them up for a lifetime of oral health and well being.

What Makes a Children's Dentist Different?

At Smile Studio Dentistry, Fontana in Fontana, our team of experienced dentists and hygienists understand the unique needs of kids. We provide specialized preventive treatments and dental care tailored to kids aged 0-16 years old. Our goal is to create a comfortable and friendly environment for kids during their visit so that the experience can be positive and enjoyable.
Our kids dentist understands that children have different general and oral health needs than adults. That is why our team takes extra time to explain the procedures and treatments needed for kids to ensure they are comfortable and safe while also working with parents to provide any extra accommodations for their children.

How Often Should My Child Visit the Dentist?

It’s important to take kids to the dentist from a young age in order to promote good dental habits and healthy oral development. We recommend kids visit the kids dentist twice per year, or every six months, because regular preventive care can help catch any issues early and reduce the risk of developing cavities and other dental problems. We recommend that parents bring their child in for their first dental visit around the time that their first teeth begin coming in. This way, your dentist can check to see if there are any potential concerns that could interfere with your child’s teeth growing in properly.
So far my experience has been wonderful. Everyone is so polite and nice. My husband first started coming here and kept on insisting for me and our kids to start coming and i gave it a shot. Love this place as well as our kids and would recommend anyone looking for a great dental office.

The Types of Treatments We Offer For Kids

At our practice in Fontana, we provide a wide range of kids dentistry services and treatments to give kids the best oral care. Our most common kids dentistry treatments include:
  • Cleanings and routine exams
  • Sealants and treatment for dental cavities
  • Orthodontic treatments such as braces
  • Extractions
  • Root canals
In addition to treatments, we also provide information and guidance to both kids and parents regarding oral health. Dental treatments are vital, of course, but having healthy oral care habits at home will play a major role in your child’s dental health and development.

Benefits of Visiting a Kids Dentist

When kids visit a professional kids dentist, they receive the highest level of care tailored to their individual needs and comfort. Regular visits will help kids get used to going to the dentist, which will make it easier for them in the future. Kids dentists are also experienced in addressing any fears or anxieties kids may have about visiting the dentist, so parents and kids alike can have a positive experience any time they visit.

Signs Your Kid Needs a Dental Visit

If you notice any of these signs in your child, we strongly recommend that parents schedule a dental visit for their child right away:
  • Unusual toothaches or pain
  • Swollen gums
  • Discolored teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Noticeable injuries or damage
We understand that it can be challenging to navigate a child’s needs as a parent. So if you are ever in doubt about whether your child may require treatment, you can contact our office. One of your staff can help you understand if you need an appointment. In most cases, it is best to come in for an examination to fully understand what your child’s situation might be.
